BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
A groundbreaking new Alzheimer’s drug was just approved by the Food and Drug Administration, offering a glimmer of hope for those who suffer from a very debilitating disease.
“This is the first time the FDA has conditionally approved a drug for the early treatment of Alzheimer’s in 20 years,” said ABC’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Jennifer Ashston. “This is something that is potentially encouraging for the 1 in 9 Americans over the age of 65 who are facing a diagnosis of Alzheimers.”
There are more than five million Americans that now have the disease, officials say, and it was one of the leading causes of death in this country before the pandemic.
For many, the approval of this drug, known as Aduhelm, offers a light at the end of a very dark tunnel.

Coming off of a spectacular lunar eclipse just a few weeks ago, some of the word is in for another celestial treat: a solar eclipse will take place on June 10.
When the darkened moon moves in front of the sun, a large portion of North America and Europe will be able to see at least a partial eclipse early Thursday morning. The eclipse is referred to as an annual solar eclipse, which means it is not a total eclipse. The last time North America experienced a total eclipse was in 2017, and 2024 is the next date for another one.
